The director-general of Standards Organisation of Nigeria (SON), Dr Joseph Odumodu, has decried the proliferation of fake electronics and electrical products imported into the country.
While on a visit to the headquarters of the Association of Nigerian Licenced Customs Agents (ANLCA) in Lagos, yesterday, said the SON’s greatest challenge at the moment is the proliferation of fake electronics and electrical products imports.
He, however, hinted that strategies were being evolved to check the influx of the fake products.
The SON boss, who lauded the ANLCA for its engaging approach to issues by employing constructive dialogue with relevant stakeholders in the maritime industry, said that cables should be purchased from only local manufacturers while no one should buy “Sunrise Cables because they are totally fake, and poses a great danger to life and property.”
He assured that a list of standard products will soon be published on the website of the organisation to guide the discerning public in their purchases and further noted that generally, the rate at which substandard goods come into Nigeria has drastically reduced. He stressed that the worry now is how to make made-in Nigeria products acceptable worldwide.
